St Louis Ballet School, part 1

I teach one day a week at the St. Louis Ballet School.  (I teach violin, not ballet!).  It’s a nice place to teach–the people are very friendly and welcoming.  They are expanding soon and I’ll have a new room!

It usually takes me about 45 minutes to 1 hour to get there (in traffic) as it is in West County, out Highway 40. It only takes about 30 minutes to get home after rush hour.

The exit sign!

The school is located in a HUGE strip mall.  Every store you can imagine is in this strip mall.  Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, Best Buy, OfficeMax, etc.

I have been teaching in the Artistic Director’s office for the past year or so.  Starting in a week or two I’ll have a new room.  Here is where I am right now:

I set up here, facing the student


Student stands in this area


Piano for me to accompany the students!


That’s my room now.  I spend only a few hours each week there.  I am excited to see how the new room compares–I think I might lose my piano, as the piano teacher will have a different room (though can probably borrow when I need to, as we teach on different days for now.)  But I know there will be more windows, and it won’t double as an office, so that’s great.  I’ll post again with pictures of the new room when I get there.
